Square Peg Pizzeria in Orange Set to Participate in Inaugural Bakes for Breast Cancer Connecticut
Square Peg Pizzeria of Orange is proud to announce its participation in the inaugural Bakes for Breast Cancer Connecticut, which helps raise funds, exposure and awareness for breast cancer research. Bakeries, cafés, pastry shops and restaurants throughout Connecticut will participate during this year’s fundraiser from Friday, May 5 through Thursday, May 11, 2023. Square Peg will dedicate 50% of its sales from all of their dessert items back to Bakes for Breast Cancer Connecticut.
“We are on a mission to end breast cancer for good, one sweet treat at a time,” said Bakes for Breast Cancer Founder Carol Sneider. “We continue to expand into different states and regions, and we felt that Connecticut was the next best location to join our other signature events in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and the Cape & Islands of Massachusetts as well. There’s a robust culinary scene there, and we hope to welcome some of those venues that pride themselves on their desserts to join our mission this year and for years to come.”
There are two ways for venues to participate in Bakes for Breast Cancer Connecticut– by offering one designated dessert throughout the week where 100% of the proceeds go towards the organization, or by offering its entire dessert roster from May 5 – 11 where 50% of the proceeds goes back to Bakes for Breast Cancer. Those funds will then support the research of Dr. Veda Giri of Yale School of Medicine and Yale Cancer Center and Dr. Rachel Freedman of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Following Bakes for Breast Cancer Connecticut will be Bakes Massachusetts and Bakes Rhode Island from Friday, May 12 through Thursday, May 18, 2023; Bakes for Breast Cancer New Hampshire and Bakes for Breast Cancer Vermont from Friday, July 21 through Thursday, July 27; and Bakes for Breast Cancer Maine and Bakes for Breast Cancer Cape & Islands from Friday, July 28 through Thursday, August 3, 2023.
